The other day while washing dishes found these beautiful circles of confusion and immediately times made a photo. The term “circles of confusion” or the English term “Circles of Confusion” is already for quite a long time a favorite term – and a multi-layered play on words around the photography, circles of friends, origin, etc..
Yes, I know – the photo doesn’t actually show circles, but bubbles. Circles are two-dimensional, bubbles are three-dimensional. But the illustration, the photo is two-dimensional and shows the perpendicular parallel projection of the bubbles in the plane: circles.
In photography, of course, ‘real’ circles of dispersion look a little different.
